Melton Sport and Health Alliance, which is led by Melton Borough Council, are inviting residents to get involved by joining a Let’s Get Moving Melton event on Sunday 21st August 2022 at Wilton Park.

Let’s Get Moving Melton aims to encourage residents to “move more, more often”, by introducing suitable physical activity opportunities in the borough.

A number of local community instructors, groups, coaches and sports clubs across the borough have partnered with the council and will be offering local people the opportunity to try out a range of physical activity sessions for free.

In addition to the activities available at Wilton Park, a wide variety of venues and facilities will host the events throughout the day including; Melton Country Park, Waterfield Leisure Centre, Melton Sports Village, Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland, John Ferneley and many more.

Cllr Malise Graham, Portfolio holder for People and Communities said:

“Let’s Get Moving Melton is a great way for individuals and families of all ages to have fun getting active together and find out about what community-based services Melton has to offer in terms of physical activity, health and wellbeing. I encourage anyone who is interested in starting physical activity or who would like to try out a different way of exercising to attend the event on the Sunday 21st August and spread the word to others. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”

In the build up to the Let’s Get Moving Melton Day, throughout the summer Melton Health and Sport Alliance will promote Melton’s multiple open spaces and parks where residents can get active. In addition, they will also showcase how local ambassadors “move more, more often”, and the activities the partake in.

If any instructors, coaches, community groups or sports clubs would like a stand or to deliver a taster session to showcase your activity to residents, there is still some availability. Please get in touch via email: sportsandhealth@melton.gov.uk.
